Holes

by Louis Sachar

Stanley Yelnats has had awful luck his whole life: He's overweight, kids tease him, his family is poor, and now he's accused of a crime he didn't commit! Stanley blames his great-great grandfather, Elya Yelnats, who stole a pig from a gypsy. According to legend, the gypsy put a curse on Elya and all his descendants.
